Apology[edit]

the article I edited about Ryane Clowe I apologize for the false information. It did say on TSN though he had signed with the Canucks but I guess it was minor bug with tsn. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.79.135.75 (talk) 04:05, 5 August 2008 (UTC)




Sidney Crosby[edit]

10:39, 31 January 2008 IrisKawling (Talk | contribs) (32,867 bytes) (→Career statistics: approximating stats? surely that qualifies as unreferenced)

I'm not sure why it would qualify as unreferenced - it came from the Halifax Daily News. It's important to get a sense of what a prolific scorer Crosby was even as a little kid. Nobody knew that he'd be a superstar when he was that young, obviously, so they didn't keep track of every point he scored in Peewee hockey.

Conference standings[edit]

All modifications I have made to any of the NHL Standings template are done via a sort of automated process. I have an excel sheet that imports the NHL Standings from ESPN and formats the standings in such a way that all I have to do is copy/paste the data. I did not know that a change to the format had been done. My edits were by no means a revert, just that I had not had those two lines of code formatted with the color code and table data. I have now modified my code as such so that it will be in the same format listed. if you make any code modifications for some better ideas to view the data, please leave a message on my talk page, or on the talk pages so that I will notice and make these changes. My apologies. Hopefully the update I just performed corrected those issues. --Pparazorback (talk) 22:55, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

ALIGN="center"[edit]

Hello, I’m just wondering why you re-added ALIGN="center" to the table rows here. I thought style="text-align:center;" did the job, and I’ve checked it with in IE7, Firefox and Opera. —LOL (talk) 01:49, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Gotcha. I noticed that you left some of the alignment markup in the table after your initial cleanup edit, so I’ve removed them again (here in case you’d like to check it over). —LOL (talk) 01:59, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Gretzky[edit]

Hi IrisKawling,

I have nominated a Wayne Gretzky image at Featured picture candidates that I believe you were involved in uploading. Thought you may be interested and want to drop by for a look at the nomination. --jjron (talk) 10:17, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Greenpoint[edit]

Hello - I would like to stop the editing war going on the Greenpoint Brooklyn page. I realize there is a post that you may find offensive. However, a majority of the items on the site have to do with Greenpoint and the blog is written by a native of the neighborhood giving an authenticity to it that other blogs do not have. I do not feel it is fair and/or appropriate to remove the external link to greenpointers based on one post.

Thank you.

Greenpoint[edit]

Alright understood. Then the other blog there should also be deleted - 11222. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Whirlygurly (talkcontribs) 03:36, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

WikiProject Ice Hockey Newsletter[edit]

WikiProject Ice Hockey Newsletter

Dear IrisKawling! You are receiving as you are a member of WikiProject Ice Hockey There's been many more new things going on at WP:HOCKEY, and I think this will help you to stay informed. Since the last newsletter sent out in October, there have been many new changes. I'm hoping to make this newsletter a bit more regular; Kaiser matias and Skudrafan1 asked for a new issue a week ago, but sadly, I've been a bit lazy and committed to other things hence this other delay. --Maxim(talk)

New recognized content
Wayne Gretzky; this picture is featured

By Maxim
There has been numerous new recognized content, so much that it's too time-consuming to sift through the "trophy cases" on WP:HOCKEY. Some interesting achievements:

Task forces

By Maxim

There was a new taskforce created within the WikiProject to deal with topics related to the Boston Bruins. It was originally founded as a separate WikiProject, but was quickly turned into a taskforce within WikiProject Ice Hockey. The list of participants is located here. Located at WP:BRUINS, the taskforce's goals are to make Boston Bruins and Bobby Orr featured articles. Good luck!

New Administrators

By Maxim
Since October, there have been three new admins promoted within the project:

A previously admin-only feature has been made available for all users. The rollback feature allows a user to quickly revert vandalism with one click. If you wish to have rollback, contact an active admin or post a request to WP:RFR.

Featured Topic Drive

By Maxim

The original featured topic drive, initiated by Scorpion0422, has concluded succesfully. National Hockey League awards is now a featured topic, with 24 articles in total. Of them, 20 are featured lists, one is a featured article, and the other three are trophy articles that were too short to become featured lists. Eight users signed up to help out, shown here. The next Featured Topic hasn't been decided upon, and the ideas and organization for it fell apart. If you have any ideas, don't hesitate to share them at WT:HOCKEY.

Notes
  • More editors are needed to help out with the newsletter. Maxim doesn't have an infinite nor perfect supply of ideas, and thus he might omit some interesting news.
  • Portal:Ice hockey is being considered for featured status. Feel free to nominate features at Portal:Ice hockey/Suggestions.
  • Should Chris Pronger have been suspended for more than eight games for stomping on Ryan Kesler? Vote here!

Note: You have received this because your name is on Wikipedia:WikiProject Ice Hockey/Newsletter/List. If you no longer wish to receive this message, remove your name. MonoBot (talk) 18:48, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Bogus claim in Led Zeppelin article[edit]

Iris, The section on allegations of plagiarism makes a claim on the original album review by John Mendelsohn for Led Zeppelin I. The wikipedia article avoids referencing the Rolling Stone article in question. After searching on the internet I've managed to find the original Rolling Stone review:

http://www.rollingstone.com/artists/ledzeppelin/albums/album/103294/review/18835333/led_zeppelin_i

The wikipedia article then states:

"When Led Zeppelin's debut album was released, it received generally positive reviews. However, John Mendelsohn of Rolling Stone magazine criticised the band for plagiarising music, notably "Black Mountain Side" from Bert Jansch's "Blackwaterside" (though Jansch himself acknowledges the song as being traditional) and the riff from "Your Time Is Gonna Come" from Traffic's "Dear Mr. Fantasy". He also accused the band of mimicking black artists, and showing off. This marked the beginning of a long rift between the band and the magazine, with Led Zeppelin rejecting later requests for interviews and cover stories as their level of success escalated."

If you read the Rolling Stone article and compare it with the above quote, it's quite obvious the claims made in the Wikipedia article appears to be bogus. Nowhere in his review does he even mention Jansch or Traffic by name or the word plagiarism. Someone appears to have made some false attributions on the current Wikipedia article to Mendelsohn. It needs to be removed. MegX (talk) 22:59, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Martin Straka[edit]

Hello Iris. Would you add Straka's signing with a Czech team into, to his page? GoodDay (talk) 22:28, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Would you update Straka's page, with the NHL's confirmation of his depature? GoodDay (talk) 22:40, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Nah! It appears the Rangers have cut him adrift. GoodDay (talk) 22:45, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Rock music WikiProject[edit]

I'd like to invite you to join the newly-formed Rock music WikiProject. There's alot of Rock-related articles on Wikipedia that could use a little attention, and I hope this project can help organize an effort to improve them. So please, take a look and if you like what you see, help us get this project off the ground and a few Rock music pages into the front ranks of Wikipedia articles. Thanks! --Be Black Hole Sun (talk) 09:05, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Linking dates[edit]

The linking of dates for the sake of autoformatting is now deprecated. I'm pointing this out due to your recent edit to the Bree Olson article. Dismas|(talk) 08:31, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

All I can say is, let's go Rangers!!! Going for the 81-1 season :).

Led Zeppelin Radio[edit]

Anonymous users have been changing Sirius Channel 12 to 33 without comment. There are no plans for Led Zeppelin to broadcast on Channel 33 after January so the changes appear to be vandalism. MegX (talk) 22:48, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer![edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

For the guideline on reviewing, see Wikipedia:Reviewing. Being granted reviewer rights doesn't change how you can edit articles even with pending changes. The general help page on pending changes can be found here, and the general policy for the trial can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. All the Best, Mifter (talk) 13:31, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

August 2010[edit]

Hi, I am concerned you have added copyrighted text to Luther (TV series), as a comparison of the text you added and the BBC website (eg [1] will show). As I'm sure you know, Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously. Edgepedia (talk) 16:20, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
